Feeling a bit down today for several reasons. Mainly because we have a) nowhere to live thats gonna be suitable for a baby, b) not enough money coming in and c) problems with OH family. Me and my OH have been together for over 6 years. He suffers from quite a severe disability which is indefinite and progressive. He is therefore on benefits and needs help with some daily activities. Ive worked full time and along side that helped my OH as much as I can. Now Im not working and obviously not getting the money in we need really. We have been living with my OH parents because he does relay on his family to help when Im not about. Now we have this surprise baby on its way, we will need a bigger place to live to accommodate OH needs and the baby's. My in laws arents too happy as we are not married (they are quite traditional Asian family) and there is tension daily and I can see it exploding very soon. We wont be able to afford a nice private house as I will be taking care of the baby and being a carer for my OH. Being on benefits isnt gonna take us very far. I dont have ANY family in the UK to help and OH family dont have the time, money, energy, will etc what not to help really. So it seems our only option will be council housing. We've spoken to them and due to our circumstances we will be quite high priority but I doubt we will get something suitable in a blink of an eye. This makes me very worried, which in turn makes me stressed, which makes me struggle to sleep, which makes me tired.... Im sure you get the picture.. I feel like I cant take care of myself enough now as we have got so much on our plate. It feels like everything is against us. It might be a bit dramatic but I dont really see many happy ways outta this situation. Im not one to feel sorry for myself or think "ah its not fair". I just wish we'd get a bit of good news and Id manage to cheer up and stop being such an emotional and worrying cow. There arent many people I can tell this to, because I dont wanna worry my family, upset OH family and I dont really have friends Id like to share things like this with so its nice I feel comfortable sharing it with BnB Thanks if you managed to read through my rant! I guess I just want my mom really for hugs LOL. What a grown up I am.
